The Tibetan People’s Memorial Project
Open competition worth INR 1 Lac
Deadline: March 10, 2018
The Tibet Museum of the Department of Information and International Relations (DIIR), Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) is pleased to announce an open call for a unique project: The Tibetan People’s Memorial.
The Tibetan People’s Memorial will occupy a central position in the new Tibet Museum, which is due to open in 2018 in Gangchen Kyishong, Dharamshala, H.P., India.
The most profound objective of any museum is to preserve memories. The memory of the 1.2 million Tibetans who died as a direct result of the Chinese occupation in Tibet is a poignant one. To preserve their memories and pay tribute to their sacrifices, we are developing a memorial project in the new museum.
The Tibet Museum now seeks concept briefs and design for this permanent installation from both Tibetans, and non-Tibetans. The selected concept (see template for concept brief) will receive a prize of one Lac Indian rupees. The competition will be open till March 10, 2018.
The successful applicant will work with The Tibet Museum, DIIR during 2018 to create the memorial in time for the museum’s opening. Due credit will be given to the selected concept briefs and design in the museum space.
All decisions made by Project leadership and an independent panel of jury constituted by The Tibet Museum, DIIR will be deemed final and irrevocable.
